Samui diving: the long-expected meeting with Whaleshark

09/07/2018

For scuba diving on Koh Samui our own dive boat visits the most «lucky» dive sites for Whaleshark encounter.

Between them is our favorite dive site Chumphon Pinnacle, also Southwest Pinnacle, Sail Rock and Shark Island. Occasionally Whalesharks are spotted at dive sites such as Green Rock and White Rock that we often use for open water training dives.

You need to be a certified PADI Open Water Diver at a minimum to dive the sites Whalesharks visit more often. Being an Advanced Diver gives you better flexibility of depth as you can dive to 30 m that enables you to fully enjoy the more famous dive sites.

Very often Whaleshark prefers to stay close to the surface, so you can even snorkel with it!

Such a close encounter with these graceful creatures leaves a lot of positive emotions and good memories about diving in Koh Tao and Ko Samui!
